Our primary focus will be on veterans and their families, with the following objectives:

  • to produce and publish world class research, evaluations and reports
  • to influence national policy and practice delivery demonstrably
  • to create an environment for enquiry and innovation
  • to work collaboratively across disciplines and institutions, including all of Anglia Ruskin University’s Faculties and Research Institutes to build on exciting work undertaken by the University's not-for-profit organisation, Ixion Holdings Ltd
  • to generate continuing income through consultancy and research opportunities
  • to develop a network relationship with individuals and institutions to draw on knowledge and enable innovative proposals for research to be called Veterans Training Research and Education Network (VeTREN)
  • to develop the nationally funded Veterans Research Hub1.
